Central heating – online monitoring for saving
We keep a check on our central heating systems with online reading and monitoring systems. The transferred data can then be used to draw conclusions about existing optimisation and savings potential, which we utilise to the full to keep the energy costs in check now and in the future.
This also allows us, for example, to keep a check on the length and temperature of night setback and have it readjusted if necessary. Furthermore, we can recognise a breakdown of the central heating system in good time and alert the technicians so that the problem can be remedied.
Water – individual itemized bill for your benefit
Our entire residential and commercial stock is equipped with cold water meters that enable us to charge households or tenants individually based on the amount of water they have actually used (properties with a central warm water supply are also equipped with warm water meters). The installation of meters and the resulting awareness building of our tenants, which led to a significant reduction in water consumption in nearly all properties, benefits you, the tenant, as it reduces your utility bill.
Household waste: separating reduces collection charge
Correct waste separation conserves resources and preserves the environment. But it also saves you cash. How? In Berlin, a collection charge is only levied for the little bin (the so-called grey bin). All other bins, like the yellow bin (for green dot packaging material), the blue bin (for paper and cardboard), the organic recycling bin, and the orange box (for bulky and recyclable waste) and waste glass containers glass are for now collected free of charge.
As most domestic waste is recyclable, the number of grey bins can either be maintained or even reduced if household waste is sorted correctly. This leads to lower collection charges, leaving more money in your pocket.
In some of our properties there is also in addition to the above bins a refuse chute that guides the domestic waste into the correct bin. The chute allows the collection charge to be distributed according to the number of disposals, which increases the incentive to separate waste. Improved waste separation means fewer little (grey) bins and lower collection charges. And it helps to conserve the environment too.
